The Whole Kit-and-Caboodle



What started off as one small bass on a Foam-Butt Caddis....


....Soon turned into one Chain Pickerel short of the whole Kit-and-Caboodle.


The bass were on, but wanting nothing to do with anything large. Even an FBC was was proving to be too big.  But after a bit of trial and error, a simple foam spider tied on a #10 Mustad 94832 did the trick. 



Before you knew it, the usual suspects began showing up


Gills and Pumpkinseeds



Even the Crappie joined in



But the bass were aggressively feeding from end-to-end. With some of the bigger fish in a mere 6" of water. 







All thanks to  the little X-Gurgler

Which took such a beating that when the folded head tore loose I trimmed it down to a standard head and it kept  going.
